  1. Hot Fuzz

    I've mentioned before that there are only a few directors who, in my mind, can do no wrong --- Aronofsky, Raimi, Singer and Nolan. Having just seen Hot Fuzz, I'm now going to add Edgar Wright to that list. I don't want to be overly hyperbolic, but I think that the British film industry ought to get down on their knees and thank whatever deity happens to be passing for not just Edgar Wright but for Simon Pegg as well, because their films are not only excellent, but because it means we, as a nation, can finally stand behind ensemble comedy pieces that don't have the words 'Carry' and 'On' in the title. β†’

It was funny, it had some very quotable lines, the action was enjoyable, Johnny Depp was brilliant, Geoffrey Rush equally so, Orlando Bloom didn't get in the way too much and Keira Knightley was reasonably fanciable, in that borderline-anorexic way of hers. I couldn't really fault it. β†’
